Subject: Wonderful Show!
One of my favorite shows of the 50s hands down if only if it could've lasted longer than it did

It's the same thing with The Twilight Zone.
Fed up with the difficulties of writing about serious issues on the conservative networks, Rod Serling turned to science fiction and fantasy. Through an ingenious mixture of morality fable and fantasy writing, he was able to circumvent the timidity and conservatism of the television networks and sponsors. Self-producing a series of vignettes that placed average people in extraordinary situations, Serling could investigate the moral and political questions of his time. He found that he could address controversial subjects if they were cloaked in a veil of fantasy, saying "I found that it was all right to have Martians saying things Democrats and Republicans could never say."

Comparing CBS Radio Workshop to The Twilight Zone isn't that far a stretch.

Subject: One of my favorite series
The first episode of this series I ever listened to was "Report on the Weuns" where archaeologists from the distant future determined that Elvis was a god and ruled by Rock n' Roll.

I was hooked :)

Subject: Not Twilight Zone
A previous reviewer claimed this was a forerunner to the Twilight Zone, but that doesn't make much sense. While there are a few sci-fi episodes, this show does all kinds of things.

Some are educational shows, some are kind of experimental theatre, some are drama, some are more documentary/non fiction. It's all over the map.

There are some really great and innovative shows in here, and its certainly worth checking out.

Despite a few misses, I'm giving this five stars for being innovative, ahead of its time, and generally awesome.

This is one of my favorite OTR shows of the 50s along with Johnn Dollar, X Minus One, Gunsmoke and Suspense.

Subject: Twilight Zone?
X Minus One (an excellent series) is often cited as the most direct predecessor of "The Twilight Zone", but this series seems to be closer to the mark. Many of the same music cues and personnel give at least the first two installments (A Brave New World) a very TZ quality. But what other eps could fall into this "Twilight Zone" category (mostly speculative fiction like horror, sci-fi, and fantasy)? I found a list at old-time.com that lists the genres, so the following list seems appropriate, but I may be missing one or two candidates. Can anyone help?

1.) Brave New World, Pt. I (27-Jan-56)
2.) Brave New World, Pt. II (3-Feb-56)
3.) Seasons Of Disbelief / Hail & Farewell (17-Feb-56)
4.) The Enormous Radio (11-May-56)
5.) The Little Prince (25-May-56)
6.) A Matter Of Logic (1-Jun-56)
7.) Star Boy (27-Jul-56)
8.) Figger Fallup's Billion Dollar Failure (24-Aug-56)
9.) A Pride Of Carrots (14-Sep-56)
10.) Report on The We'uns (11-Nov-56)
11.) The King Of The Cats (25-Nov-56)
12.) The Big Event (16-Dec-56)
13.) The Space Merchants, Pt. I (17-Feb-57)
14.) The Space Merchants, Pt. II (24-Feb-57)
15.) The Endless Road (17-Mar-57)
16.) A Dog's Life (31-Mar-57)
17.) Lightship (28-Apr-57)
18.) Nightmare (5-May-57)
19.) The Long Way Home (12-May-57)
20.) Housing Problem (16-Jun-57)
21.) The Green Hills Of Earth (21-Jul-57)
22.) Never Bet The Devil Your Head (28-Jul-57)
23.) The Celestial Omnibus (18-Aug-57)
24.) People Are No Good (8-Sep-57)
25.) Time Found Again (15-Sep-57)

Remembering that sometimes the TZ wasn't science fiction, fantasy or horror (think "Time Enough at Last" or "One More Pallbearer") there may be more episodes that could fit under this aegis. If you are familiar with both series, would you tell me what I'm missing on my list?

Subject: "Theater of the Mind"
These are really great--some experimental stuff, some fun stories, some mysteries and suspense, some mockumentaries, some music... all kinds of things.
A good number of true gems and a few to pass over. Lots of bright moments with Bill Conrad, Parley Baer, John Dehner, Virgina Gregg, and more. Highly recommended.
